Boston Latin student draws portraits of every graduating senior

BOSTON (WHDH) - A graduating student artist has decorated the halls at Boston Latin School with portraits of every member of his Class of 2016.

Phillip Sossou decided to draw a portrait of all 411 seniors, which now hang in the school’s hallway. It took Sossou four months to draw all of them.

Sossou said a few parents and students were very touched when they saw all the portraits hanging up and were moved to tears. He said he did not expect people to be so moved by his artwork.

Sossou will study animation at Bunker Hill Community College and UMass Amherst.
